“Planeat” screening in Greystones!

with 2 comments

Have you ever wondered what’s wrong with meat and dairy? Or how what we eat affects you and the planet? Well, you’ll have a chance to find out! We’ll be screening Planeat movie at the Happy Pear on 24th of June!

Planeat is the story of three men’s life-long search for a diet, which is good for our health, animals, good for the environment and good for the future of the planet. With an additional cast of pioneering chefs and some of the best cooking you have ever seen, the scientists and doctors in the film present a convincing case for the West to re-examine its love affair with meat and dairy. The film features the ground-breaking work of Dr. T Colin Campbell in China exploring the link between diet and disease, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s use of diet to treat heart disease patients, and Professor Gidon Eshel’s investigations into how our food choices contribute to global warming, land use and oceanic deadzones.

Gary Yourofsky rocks!

Thanks to a friend’s recent post I came across an incredible speech given by Gary Yourofsky. It’s all about animal rights and veganism but please note it’s definitely not another boring lecture! I think it’s one of the best speeches given on these topics. The guy is charismatic and funny and he gets to the point. I mean take an ass bread for example. Doesn’t that sound intriguing? Every turkey lover should find out more about it!

Moreover, I think that most vegans at least once met with reactions of people like: “So you eat tofu, soy sausages and drink oat milk? That’s disgusting!” orAre you a vegan? That fanaticism!” or indignant, “It is natural that we have the right to eat animals, so it was always, amen sister!” Gary greatly deals with these stereotypes, while indicating what is more disgusting and extreme than this “fanatic” veganism!
